Synopsis

"You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy.

So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world.Everything that’s worth living for.

 

1. Ice Cream

2. Kung Fu Movies

3. Burning Things

4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose

5. Construction cranes

6. Me

 

You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling.

 

Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.

 

A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

 

Based on true and untrue stories.

"In Every Brilliant Thing, 

he[Andrew Marko] is affable, 

down to earth and the audience 

is drawn in quietly but directly."
- The Straits Times

"Andrew Marko is brilliant at 

navigating the crowd and 

holding  the action together

 from beginning to end. 

Beyond just acting, he manages 

to pull in the crowd and 

bring everyone together with 

his humour and demeanor."

grounded as he steers clear of oversentimentality while

keeping upbeat throughout."
